Camden has long since been considered one of London's musical meccas and draws millions of visitors every year.

Nowadays many come to trace the footsteps of late Camden legend, Amy Winehouse , whose strong attachment to Camden led her to mention it in her 2008 Grammy acceptance speech, hours after a fire ripped through its famous market.

Those making the Winehouse pilgrimage can pay their respects by sinking a pint at her favourite haunt, the Hawley Arms, or by wandering down to watch a gig at The Dublin Castle pub where she often took to the stage.

But Camden's rock and roll heritage way predates Winehouse. Venues like The Roundhouse and Dingwalls have been hosting the biggest names in music since the 60s and 70s.

Amy Winehouse sang at Koko in November 2006

Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, The Sex Pistols and Nirvana are just a few of the music megastars to have played on Camden's stages.

Camden's music scene is still thriving with a plethora of pubs and larger venues like Koko.

These are the best places to catch live music, concerts and gigs in Camden Town.
